SOURCE: hydraulic pump automatic roof
I've done it 2 ways:
1st - loosen the pump assy - nuts on either end, then unscrew the plastic bottle. This is a pain unless your hands are the size of a baby's!
2nd - undo the nut on the side of the pump assy. (looks brass, from memory and is about a 13mm) and this uncovers a hole which leads into the top of the bottle. Then use a small hose and syringe to refill. This can get messy but was slightly easier than the first method.

the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..

underneath the trunk liner by the spare is usually where the pump and relay are located. The reservoirs are generally in the r side of trunk. These vehicles are very compact and they have a space saver spare that has an air pump to inflate tire. Remove those items and look in owners manual for reservoir and fluid specs.. Try starting your car and raising the top all the way on. You also may have not retracted your cargo cover in trunk or the microswitch on the side has fallen off giving faulty input to the module. Even though the pump is running the fluid isn't being dispursed to the proper r.a.m.s for 1 of 2 reasons. either you have a bad or loose microswitch. Or a cable is broken or loose not closing or opening up a microwitch and the module is in "limp home mode" it is the default of the system designed so no one or no thing gets hurt. If none of these things help you the top can be raised or lowered manually. your owner's manual tells you how to do this. Then you will need to get the car scanned for codes to properly diagnose the problem. Good luck

If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

Inspect the hydraulic fluid level with the vehicle parked on a level surface, the folding top in the closed position, and the stowage compartment lid open.
When new, the power folding top hydraulic fluid is golden clear. As the system is cycled, it picks up the carbon black from the numerous O-ring seals used in the system. The carbon black acts like a dye and causes the fluid to darken considerably and take on a black appearance. This is a normal occurrence and no repair attempts should be performed, as replacement fluid will also darken.
Place a protective covering over the interior and the adjacent body panels. Locate the hydraulic pump in the folding top storage compartment area on the right side. Remove the rear quarter trim panel. Refer to Rear Compartment Side Trim Replacement - Right Side . Place a shop towel around the pump motor to control any hydraulic fluid spillage.
Important: Wait 5 minutes before separating the hydraulic cylinder lines at any connectors.
Remove the reservoir filler plug. Add fluid GM P/N 88901975 or (Canadian P/N 88901976) ONLY, add the fluid until the level is at the middle of the indicator line on the reservoir.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in the Preface section.
Install the reservoir filler plug.
Folding Top Deck Lid Access
In the event that the rear compartment lid is inhibited from conventionally opening due to a folding top symptom, displaying a TOP NOT SECURE message or that the folding top operation can not complete the opening or closing sequence as it is inhibited by the rear compartment latch being ajar, displaying a TOP INOP-TRUNK message, follow the steps below to determine the specific Tech 2 Special Function to gain access.
Important: Allow the system a minimum of three minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
